User Reviews

Intelligent, funny, best soundtrack, and best Indian flick of the decade
29 January 2001 | by subir1See all my reviews

Waltzing Matunga, Mumbhai, Naseeruddin Shah, gangsters, hijras, socialites, NRIs. This movie has something for everyone, and it's all good. The single funniest Hindi/Indian movie you will see this decade.

The movie is about three NRIs who come to Bombay from the US, UK, and Australian. There's love, lust, violence, drama, singing, dancing... Everything you'd expect in a Bollywood pot-boiler, but this one is both enjoyable and intelligent.
